comfort food thursday

there is NOTHING more comforting than chicken noodle soup. nothing. in fact, it has become known as food for the soul (see chicken soup for the soul book series) so, on this comfort food thursday, we are going big and braving the ultimate comfort food. it feels like a day worthy of such an endeavor, don't you think? chicken noodle soup with dill (thank you, eating well)

what you need:
10 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
3 medium carrots, diced
1 large stalk celery, diced
3 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
6 cloves garlic, minced
4 ounces whole-wheat egg noodles, (3 cups)
4 cups shredded cooked skinless chicken breast, (about 1 pound; see Tip)
3 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
1 tablespoon lemon juice, or to taste

what you do:
bring broth to a boil in a dutch oven. add carrots, celery, ginger and garlic; cook, uncovered, over medium heat until vegetables are just tender, about 20 minutes. add noodles and chicken; simmer until the noodles are just tender, 8 to 10 minutes. stir in dill and lemon juice.

plus, it will be even more comforting when served with grilled cheese sandwiches...
